FootballKubasaki (0-1) at Nile C. Kinnick (0-0) When — 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17.Where — Yokosuka Naval Base, Japan.What — Regular-season opener for the host Red Devils, the former DODEA-Japan champions who shared the title in 2014 and won it outright the year before; and the visiting Dragons, who have played in the DODEA-Pacific Far East Division I title game the last five years and need a win to stay in the chase for a sixth. Kubasaki has won the Okinawa district title and hosted the D-I championship the last two years running but came out on the short end.Players to watch — Braylan Pittman, a senior, was the bright spot for the Dragons in their opening 34-3 loss Sept. 2 to two-time D-I champion Kadena. Pittman rushed 17 times for 114 yards and caught a pass for 21 yards. Senior Antony Gomez anchors the line behind which Pittman and quarterback Cameron McCall will operate. The Red Devils carry a fairly large line of their own, hoping to create space for senior back Chauncey Jamerson, junior quarterback Kacey Walker and a cadre of skills players such as junior receivers Darius Watson and Devaney Stanley.
